Nottingham-based digital marketing agency, Adtrak, is championing local charity Framework with two fundraising challenges in June 2019.
The events will see 13 employees participating, each sporting their own bespoke Adtrak kit. From running to cycling, the ambitious team will be entering the Wollaton Park 10k Run and the ‘Little’ John Bike Ride, both based in and around Nottinghamshire. One daring staff member, Alasdair Purkis, is taking on both events.
First up is the Wollaton Park 10k Run, taking place on 15th June 2019. Runners will embark on a multi-terrain marathon that will take them all around the ground’s lakes, woods and paths.
The team then take on the challenging ‘Little’ John Bike Ride on 23rd June 2019 – an arduous 100 miles that will take riders to every corner of Nottinghamshire, from Ossington to Langar. Incorporating a Category 5 climb it will not be all smooth, flat roads. Furthermore, to compete in the event, cyclists must complete the 100 miles in 10 hours.
This won’t be the first time Adtrak has supported the local organisation. After nominating Framework as its first official charity of the year in December 2018, the team has already participated in local charity events. Most recently, team members slept on the streets to raise awareness for Nottingham’s homeless, as part of the charity’s annual, record-breaking event, the Big Sleep Out, contributing to the impressive £40,000 raised.
Managing Director Chris Robinson commented: “We’re fully behind our team members taking part in the events and are impressed so many are willing to take on what will certainly be a formidable feat. We’ve already raised £1468.50 since we started working with the charity in October 2018.
“It really is a privilege for us to be involved with such an essential organisation, especially one so close to home as Framework. In our continued partnership with them, we look forward to supporting their invaluable work for homeless people in the city.”
Adtrak chose Framework as its first official charity of the year, after recognising the vital work that it delivers across the East Midlands. Framework works tirelessly to deliver housing, health, employment, support and care services to people with a diverse range of needs, providing a lifeline for those living in crisis.
